Hi there! I had a chickens (Ameraucanas) as a child and it was an all around wonderful experience. I now have 2 kids, ages 7 and 8, who fell in love with Silkies at our local 4H fair and I am hoping to get some chicks for them in the spring. Right now we are researching and figuring coops/runs/etc. Since its been so long and I was very young I don't remember tons about taking care of chickens so I have been doing a lot of research and I am so glad to have stumbled upon this website. It is a wealth of wonderful information and personal experience and I think it will really help us as we embark on our chicken journey!

There’s a link on the page above to the Learning Centre - it’s a great resource. If you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

Each week, various topics are discussed, which can also be a great resource - https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/topic-of-the-week-thread-archives

This is a useful link of BYC guides to take a look at announcements-feedback-issues-guides.3 I’d suggest including your location using the guide in that link, if you have not already done so. You can use this link to contact members in your area - Find your State's thread.
